Cannondale CAADX SE

I’ve been looking for a gravel rig for a while now and since I’m sorted on the road, it was finally time. Planning on doing some events throughout New England and I had been looking for a long time for the right deal. Noticed REI had 20% off on a few cannondales including 2019 CAADX SE 105 and had to pounce. Plus they offer no questions asked returns for a year... here are a few first photos. Need to get my pedals on it and adjust a few things but really enjoyed the first ten miles of dirt and rock

The only current “gravel bike” that I would actually consider investing in right now. Luscious!

Great bike and a good example of a modern value solution to the gravel question. not everything needs to be titanium or bespoke to be very capable.

i look forward to seeing it out there in greater new england.

d2r2?

note: get some paint protectors on that headtube or those cables are going to eat right through the cool paint.

cheers!

OH YEAH awesome idea, I totally forgot about the frame protectors. Have them on my road bike so I'll prime some.

Unfortunately I have a massive exam the day of D2R2 for OMFS, it's on my list!
